Murder suspect Daniel Campbell wore a bandana and said he was an “outlaw” as he allegedly killed one person and critically injured another last week in Texas County.

Witnesses said around 7 p.m. Oct. 25, Campbell appeared out of the darkness with pistols in each hand at 15152 Boiling Springs Road, where where four people were outside. Campbell was wearing a blue bandana and made remarks saying he was an “outlaw,” Texas County Sheriff James Sigman said.

Campbell fired one shot at William T. Dumboski, 55, causing him to fall to the ground. He also fired one round at Billy Dale Bishop II, 38, striking him on the left side of the head. Campbell also shot both men while they were on the ground.

Bishop, 38, died at the scene, according to Texas County Coroner Tom Whittaker. Dumboski, 55, was airlifted from the scene to a Springfield hospital in critical condition. He was later released.

Sigman said Campbell’s parents lived next door and that Daniel Campbell would “stay there periodically.”

“There was a history with Dumboski and the Campbell family,” Sigman said. “It appears Bishop was at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

After shooting both men, Campbell went to Bishop’s truck in the driveway and placed a duffle bag of clothes inside. Authorities found the vehicle Thursday at Robert Lane’s property. Campbell then returned to where the men had been shot and placed a pistol underneath the chin of one of the witnesses for several seconds.

The witnesses told authorities Campbell announced his name at the scene. They also identified him in a photograph.
